Extreme Tail Boom for CX2

http://www.xtreme-production.com/xtr...d5c788bd44034c

I installed this boom for my CX2 I like the the look but the center fin with the 2 black supports in the middle of the boom is flimsy and move around and the support bars will fall off . How can I make them stay on? will a little super glue do the trick for the support arms , how about the center fin in the middle of the tail it's already tight but still moves around? any idea

You could just put a couple of layers of clear tape around the boom at that point, makes it a little bit larger so the clamp will tighten and grab a bit better.
Then you won't need to glue any of it, which just creates an issue if you need to remove any of it later on.

I use "Sally Hansen Hard as Nails" (clear) to hold plastic to plastic and, also those pesky screws (screw to plastic). Like those 4 screws that hold the boom to the main frame. Just don't use it on O-Rings. It will make them crack and brittle.

Not really. But, parts will break free when you want them to. Unlike CA which can be a PITA.

Just put the two parts where you like. Dab the parts where they meet. I usually use two coatings. It dries real fast so you can get through the job in minutes. On a few of my helis the skids always came loose. YUP, Sally Hansen to the rescue.

Some years ago I was faced with the same problem. I didn't want to use CA. As I was sitting out on the deck with my wife and her friend I was discussing my problem. They both (almost in unison) suggested Sally Hansen Hard as Nails. The rest is history and I still use it to this day on many projects.
